Parent Requests for Attending a Specific School

Students are assigned a specific home school based on their current home address.  To determine your assigned school, please use the School Assignment page.

If a parent wishes to make a request for their child/children to attend a school other than their assigned school, a written request, clearly stating the reason, must be submitted to the Assistant Superintendent of Schools.  Requests made via phone or left on voice mail will not be accepted. 

Please include the following information:

  • Parent’s Name
  • Home Address
  • Telephone Number
  • Student's Name
  • Student's Grade Level
  • Student's Date of Birth.

Catherine Kolnaski Magnet School, Northeast Academy Arts Magnet, Cutler Arts and Humanities Magnet Middle School and West Side STEM Magnet Middle School use the lottery process for entry for children outside their home district.  New parent requests are no longer being accepted for these schools.

PLEASE NOTE:  If request is approved, Groton school buses will not transport your child/children to the requested school.  Parents are responsible for transportation to and from school.

Please send correspondence to:  Assistant Superintendent of Schools, c/o Mrs. Erica Crider, Groton Public Schools, P.O. Box K, Groton, CT 06340.
